A few weeks after Thornton’s body was discovered, a single-engine plane owned by Atlanta real estate developer David “Cowboy” Williams crashed, killing Williams, the pilot, and 15 other skydivers. Here is the synopsis for Cocaine Bear: “Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner's plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow… and blood.

While Cocaine Bear is set in Georgia, the bulk of these gorgeous exteriors were actually shot in Wicklow county, Ireland. We will introduce you exclusively to Newpay finance products provided by NewDay Limited under this Introducer Appointed Representative arrangement. While protecting and serving the people of Kentucky, he also became a successful drug smuggler—although his criminal career was cut short that day in 1985 when he became a much less successful skydiver after getting tangled in his own chute. It’s not like Mediumrare had to create an Atmos track, one already existed…so the only reasons to think of why it wasn’t included were rights issues (annoying) or cost (even more annoying). It turns out those duffle bags were full of cocaine and meant to be picked up by the crew of a drug dealer named Syd (Ray Liotta in his final movie).Namechecking creature feature classics such as Tremors and Lake Placid were for once not idle boasts. The primary reaction I’ve had from people when I told them what I thought of Cocaine Bear is one of credulity. There’s still plenty of life left in the Blu-ray format, and it’s more than adequate to give a film like Cocaine Bear the consideration that it deserves. But it was a sufficiently goofy fun time to have us more fondly remembering the classic films it reminds us of than bemoaning the waste of a title that the Sam Jackson and Asylum peers certainly had us doing. Its beautifully gonzo moniker, and its stunning admission that it is in fact ‘based on real events’, caused all manner of fan fiction expanded universe sequels featuring other animals on other forms of narcotics (‘Heroine Badger’ was my favourite) to be the scuttlebutt of the internet prior to its release.

Something which many, myself included, thought should never be a word associated with a film entitled Cocaine Bear. Full Moon brings together a six pack of B-movies produced by legendary schlockmeisters Eurocine in one handy boxed set collection. Most of the bear attacks are played for laughs, which works much better in the context of the wider film, and thanks to that fairly modest budget and lack of oceans of VFX work (which here veers between the very ok to the really quite decent), they’re brief and never hang around to derive any form of tension that may turn this out and out comedy into a horror comedy.Audio Commentary - Elizabeth Banks and producer Max Handelman talk about the movie, bringing it to life, the origins, casting, comedy, and gore. The drugs are scattered all over the park, and they are also all over some of the people in the park. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. Most telling though, is the special feature going into forensic detail on the various death scenes – this is clearly the element that Banks spent the most time piecing together, and this is both the biggest asset and the film’s greatest hindrance. A rich, lush image that just misses out on the very top tier of fine detail, but remains overall simply a gorgeous picture.

Other than that, this comedy with blood and guts suffers from pacing issues in the first half of the movie. It helps that the ambulance crew are really only introduced for this one sequence, so is removed from the rest of the action, almost feeling like a separate short film – It’s also a great showcase for TikTok star Scott Seiss who imbues his medic with more charisma and injects a serious amount of energy into the film in his brief screentime. It probably won’t be a movie you’ll go back to more than once but it’s a perfectly fine time killer on a day when you don’t have anything better to do.

When they overhead radio chatter that sounded like federal agents were on their tail, they decided to push their bags of cocaine out of the plane before bailing out themselves. So regardless of how you prefer to consume your media these days, the home video release date is just around the corner. The mix of brown tree bark and dirt looks wonderful as well which contrasts nicely with the blue sky. It is nice that Universal is still giving this one a physical release, as studios have recently been moving away from that. the nose at times (yes, White Lines by Melle Mel is indeed wheeled out), it’s not remotely gonna satisfy those wanting 90 mins of a limb-ripping exploitation classic ( Grizzly III anyone?

This is all well and good, but the big fatal flaw with Cocaine Bear is that its pacing is all over the place.

There’s character actress Margo Martindale as the gruff, no-nonsense park warden, Isaiah Whitlock Jr as the deadpan detective hunting the cocaine, and Alden Erhenreich as the newly widowed gangster sent to retrieve the cocaine – he also gets perhaps the funniest line reading in the entire film. Universal’s Blu-ray release of Cocaine Bear is branded as a Maximum Rampage Edition, because, why wouldn’t it be?
